Less Is More...More Or Less
Hi all,
Less is More...more or less?!
Summer is almost here and we are all looking forward to the next Marillion project. The band are to record a new Studio 'Acoustic' album due for release in Autumn 2009. This album will be supported by an Acoustic Tour.
You can check out the Tour dates as they are announced at:
We will be bringing you exclusive updates on the recording process as it unfolds so watch this space, there will be loads of great stuff coming your way.
For those who can't wait that long we have chosen to feature the 1999 Album 'Unplugged At The Walls' on the website. We feel this album really shows the band at their best in acoustic mode. We have added sound clips from this album on the site so you don't have to take our word for it.
To make way for new merchandise, there are some products which are being re-stocked for the last time, so get in quick while they are still available. Any 'Happiness Is The Road' related merchandise will be winding down soon, the last batch of 'Signature Range' T-shirts are due soon but once they are gone we will not be re-stocking so get these while you still can.
We are hard at work on our new range of Marillion merchandise which will be even bigger and better than before, we will let you know as soon as these items become available.
Many thanks for all your letters and pictures from the Marillion weekends in Holland and Canada. The response from you all was incredible. We really appreciate your continued support and are looking forward to the next one. You can see some pictures and a selection of messages from fans and the band at:
